Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
Business / companyConsumerMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 18 cents per litre (cpl) to 137.6 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 25 April 2017, most Puma, BP, Caltex Woolworths, Caltex and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP price to 139.9 cpl (increasing between 20 and 24 cpl). Most United sites are increasing their ULP price to 139.7 cpl, and most 7-Eleven sites to 137.9 cpl.

Perth’s weekly petrol price cycle results in prices, on average, being cheapest on Sunday and Monday and at their most expensive on Tuesday and Wednesday – that’s why we recommend filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still over 30 sites selling below 129 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 23 cpl, which means you can save up to $13 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 113.4 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 113.4 cpl at Puma Parmelia in the South; and
  • 113.4 cpl at Puma Landsdale in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 119.9 cpl at FastFuel 24/7 in the East;
  • 116.5 cpl at Better Choice Naval Base in the South; and
  • 119.5 cpl at Puma Neerabup in the North.

Drivers can head to the mobile compatible www.fuelwatch.wa.gov.au site to find the cheapest fuel in their area. Log on after 2.30pm each day to compare today’s and tomorrow’s prices. You can also sign up for free emails along with the 28,000 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
